In this offbeat sci-fi-drama, Rosetta Stone (Tilda Swinton) is a scientist specializing in biogenetics who has made a major breakthrough in artificial biological engineering. Rosetta has created a type of Self-Replicating Automaton, which looks like a human being, but is in fact part machine and part living organism.

No Friends? Inconceivable! Log in to see what your friends have to say.
Fails as entertainment, being so ineptly directed and written it often has the feel of a high school production by kids with more money and ambition than talent.
Stumbles from one catatonic scene to the next, mixing aggressively 'clever' ideas with strident dialogue.
viewers have to endure new media artist Lynn Hershman Leeson's uncomfortable attempts at taking her cracking-stiff theories and translating them into dramatic narrative form
Leeson's sensibility is a thoroughly irritating mix of intellectual hauteur and juvenile smuttiness.
A muddled mess of cybernetics and new-age philosophy that goes nowhere slow, despite its abbreviated 80-minute running time
'Teknolust' embarrassingly resembles insulting, insistent television commercials. Unfortunately, they may be the future.
Wallows in dubious plot constructions, shoddy design, immature camera work, and a fatiguing lack of thrill.
I can't imagine anyone not being disappointed by this movie, which dares to be different yet fails miserably doing so.
Clumsy, no question, but perhaps understandably burdened by its sprawling ambition.
The picture proves tiring, its pretty, color-coordinated images are like flipping through a funky fashion magazine.
The plot is vapor, but tech whimsy, movie lifts and funny multiples of Swinton sustain a San Franciscan charm.
Yes, it's odd that a movie so focused on sex and computers could be a complete letdown, but this bizarre trip is just that.
An oddball, biotech Rocky Horror Picture Show for the intellectual set.
